The Development of Modern Urban Planning in Quebec between 1946-1973
MetadataShow full item record
This report will provide a contribution to the history of the Community Planning Association of Canada (CPAC) and, more specifically, its Quebec Division, and its role in the development of the planning profession and planning practices. It will look at the historical context that led to the emergence of the CPAC, its expansion into Quebec, and will focus on three particular areas of influence. This report will argue that the role of the CPAC has been underappreciated in urban planning historiography and that the current major treatment of planning history in Quebec, André Boisvert’s Aménagement et Urbanisme au Québec, provides little coverage of the topic. Using archival material from the CPAC, this report attempts to reconstruct some of the vital contributions the association brought to the development of planning in the province of Quebec.
